Crescent ♌ Leo
Last Quarter is the lunar phase on . Seen from Earth, illuminated fraction of the Moon surface is 48% and getting smaller. The 22 days old Moon is in ♌ Leo.
* The exact date and time of this Last Quarter phase is on 29 October 2086 at 07:40 UTC.
Moon rises at midnight and sets at noon. It is visible to the south in the morning.
Moon is passing about ∠9° of ♌ Leo tropical zodiac sector.
Lunar disc appears visually 5.4% narrower than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1831" and ∠1932".
Next Full Moon is the Beaver Moon of November 2086 after 22 days on 20 November 2086 at 20:12.
There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.
The Moon is 22 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving through the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1073 of Meeus index or 2026 from Brown series.
Length of current 1073 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 57 minutes. This is the year's longest synodic month of 2086. It is 3 minutes longer than next lunation 1074 length.
Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 13 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 50 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.
This lunation true anomaly is ∠181.4°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠206.3°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).
7 days after point of perigee on 21 October 2086 at 22:00 in ♈ Aries. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 5 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 3 November 2086 at 17:53 in ♎ Libra.
Moon is 391 552 km (243 299 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 5 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 226 km (252 417 mi).
4 days after its descending node on 24 October 2086 at 18:13 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 9 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 8 November 2086 at 03:04 in ♐ Sagittarius.
17 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.
3 days after previous North standstill on 25 October 2086 at 17:01 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠21.669°. Next 10 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-21.623° in the next southern standstill on 9 November 2086 at 06:12 in ♐ Sagittarius.
After 7 days on 6 November 2086 at 11:53 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
